Shape: Changing
Duration:around 2 hours
It changed from being hard to view to being very bright and then colored lights would ripple through middle and around quickly.

I live just outside Tyler and last evening I saw something way off in the sky, for hours I watched it. I reported that, too. Anyways, I was watching the Tonight Show and across the lake from me there is a marshy area and then a ranch-ish looking property w/ lots of acreage. I saw a blinking light in the sky first which looked like what I'd seen the previous night. That light was way in the sky but it was across the lake SE from me and then, and I couldn't see it very well, but I definitely saw a low, closer hovering light fairly dim in the trees more to the left next to the property and then what I thought might be people out on the property with flashlights - there were lights as if from a flashlight or helicopter surveying the ground and I couldn't tell what I saw it wasn't very clear but it was a streak of some low to the ground animal back and forth. I thought maybe it was a dog at first, but it was way too fast - maybe a mountain lion? It caught my attention, but I wasn't startled until the light in the trees dimmed and then flew across several properties and was changing color to red like a laser pointer or something. But then it would light up again in dim white and it just floated around from place to place. I got kind of nervous when a red light got in front of my house, I woke my husband who was on the sofa and he also saw the red light. It didn't move, it just stayed still from what I saw, but he'd talked me into watching TV instead of freaking myself out and later he said he'd seen it move. We went to bed after him dismissing me and telling me it's some kid w/ a laser pointer. I read for a bit to calm my mind and when I turned the light off to go to sleep - through the blinds in a room completely on the other side of the house facing West there was a very, very bright light that was hovering in the wooded area outside our house. I woke my husband up again and he agreed he could see it and although he'll never admit it could be anything other than something explainable I could tell he got a little spooked. He kept whispering loud - "ok, so what do you want me to do? I see it, I see it". The light would change from VERY bright white to dimmer so you could barely see it and then brighten up again and as it would brighten a bunch of tiny little colored lights would blink so fast - red blue green. I saw this light at around 12:45 and it lasted a little over an hour. It moved very slowly all around and lowered into the trees and I heard noises like low whistles best way I can describe it was a soft high pitched noise between flute and a whistle. I had trouble sleeping but nothing else happened after the thing left. I didn't move to another window - when it was out of my eyeshot, I just let it go. It was so bright the lights from it were coming in our window and it was like a headlights that were moving around the room depending on where this thing was positioned and how dim or bright it got. - This is a copy of my report to MUFON on 6/13/08.
